The actors of the movie Contagion have shared public service announcements advising people to keep the social distance and wash their hands regularly.
Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jennifer Ehle, and Laurence Fishburne shared videos of themselves giving Covid-19 tips to protect yourself from the Coronavirus.
The videos were created with academics at Columbia University.
“Wash your hands like your life depends on it,” says Winslet.
“Because right now, in particular, it just might. Or the life of someone you love. Or even the life of someone you might not know but is still deserving of your consideration.”
